Questions & Answers
5 questions

My blade was cutting fast at first but after some use it has slowed down. Why is this happening?

Diamond blades can become glazed over after some cutting and it is best to use a dressing stone to restore the performance of the blade. Most diamond blade manufacturers recommend dressing your blade every 60 linear feet to ensure proper cutting. Click here for Diamond Blade Dressing Stones!

Can I use this blade to cut porcelain and ceramic tile?

This 10 inch diamond blade will cut both porcelain and ceramic tiles with great results. We always recommend to use a dressing stone as well to condition the blade.

Will this blade work on a wet saw ?

This blade will work on 10" tile saws with a 5/8" arbor.

Does this blade have the extra material on the center of the blade like the razor T3? I find it helps with the wobble big time.

The Razor T3 requires the thicker hub due to the thinner rim .050" the thicker hub reduces the chances of the blade walking. The Pearl abrasive blade has a rim kerf of .060" and the thicker core is not required or needed for accurate cuts.

How does this blade perform on miter and dive cuts? And how does this blade compare in performance (speed of cuts and durability) to the Dewalt XP4 and T3 Razor.

Based on customer reviews, this blade is not fully recommended for extensive miter cutting. While it can perform miter and dive cuts, it tends to dull out the miter side of the blade.

This blade can cut very hard porcelain as well as other materials making it a very durable tile saw blade. It will give you about the same cut speed as other 10" non-turbo rim diamond blades.

Nice blade ..

Replaced a Razor T3 with this, now cutting tile is a pleasure again, this is a much more useful and durable blade.

Great Recommendation! Great Blade! Better Price!

by Da Tile Guy -

This is by far one of the best porcelain blades I have ever used and I used them all. This blade cuts fast, cuts clean, and lasts!!! Contractors Direct recommended I try this blade after having some issues with another brand and they knocked it out of the park! Another reason why I shop here great selection of tools and they know what a contractor needs. They are not tied to a brand like some other companies I have dealt with. The salesman said something along the lines of "we are not loyal to any brand" this was very comforting to me as I was sold the RTC brand from tiletools.net (owned by the same company) the thicker core seperated from the blade and they refused to accept blame even though they were the manufacturere and seller. Dealing with a company that sells results instead of brand is comforting. Customer for life!

Poor life with this blade

by Handykay

We must be the exception to most of the other reviews. We tried this blade for cutting 3/4" thick porcelain pavers and it it gave by far the worst lifetime. It died very quickly. Hot dog and Norton Slicer gave much better lifetime.

Finally, a good blade for hard porcelain

by Rob -

I've been having trouble with large porcelain tiles chipping at the end of the cut no matter what blade I used, or how new. Bought the P4 and it cut great! 200 square feet of 20x20s and not one chip. Awesome blade.

Great Blade!

by ContractorinPink

Used my Pearl blade today. Cuts were smooth and clean. Very difficult to determine which was the cut side! Cut porcelain tile for Master Bath.
